John Surma’s brother Vic is quoted in Centre Daily Times article from Nov. 2011 - He lived “in a spare basement” of Sandusky’s when he went to Penn State. An interesting comment from a student in this article “Dylan Johnson, 21, of Marietta, a Penn State senior journalism major, said he was surprised that John Surma, a man neither he nor any of his friends had ever seen or heard of, would have such a significant impact on their university. “I had no idea who he was,” Johnson said. “You’d think someone would know who these people (the trustees) are. I had never seen any of them on campus before.”
